    Tail rotor gear box failure? The tail rotor seems to be moving slow. The best part of this is the pilot doesn't have to pay for the repairs. Just the NY Fire Dept or their insurer.

      @OWEN BOCK gotcha, It looked like fuel being dumped, good to know the facts though, thanks.

      OWEN BOCK 3 months ago

      @The Mower Co. What you are seeing is the deployment of the emergency skid floats. They use compressed air. A Bell 206 is not capable of dumping fuel like that.

    Looks like A potential loss of tail rotor effectiveness. Lowerng the collective and trying to gain speed was the right move unfortunately there wasn't enough altitude to gain speed for a potential run on landing.

      I'm a pilot and have flown along the Hudson many times and never had a problem. There's just a LOT of aircraft the fly above it so the chances are higher.

    thats actually a controlled crash, very professional pilot, looks crasy to us but thats the way its suppose to work

      OWEN BOCK 3 months ago

      It looks like he was a little slow to respond. I think he should have cut power and pitched forward if it were a complete tail rotor failure. He still made good work of a crappy situation. Failure on take off or landing doesnt allow time to go through a mental failure checklist.
